Did You Know?


At one point in the film, Paul asks Raoul what his directing background is, to which he answers, "theater mostly". In three episodes of Friends (1994), Reg Rogers (Raoul) played a theater director, and was a very similar character. See more »


In the scene where Paul Vitti is working in the jewelry store, the last shot shows Paul wearing a yarmulke as he turns away from the camera. However, he is clearly not wearing the yarmulke in previous shots when the back of his head is visible. See more »

User Reviews

Not as good as the first, but if you watch one, you may as well watch the other.
5 August 2012 | by PadraigWalshFilmSee all my reviews

Analyze That is the sequel to Analyze This and again re-unites Robert DiNero and Billy Crystal. The story picks up right where Analyze This left off. Paul Vitti is in jail and when unknown people try and kill him, he realizes he must get out and get to those responsible for the attempts in murdering him, before they get to him. He fakes an illness and gets released into his former shrink, Ben Sobel's, care.

I enjoyed the first one. I thought it had a a few funny moments, great acting, and I just overall enjoyed it. I didn't see the point in a sequel. However, I also enjoyed this one. It wasn't as good as the first, by no means. But it was still alright.

Once again, it had funny moments and great acting, but I didn't buy into the premise, and some of the dialog was a bit hammy. However, I enjoyed it and, if you watch one, you might as well watch the other.

A solid 6/10
